Celebrate Astronomy Day at Topsail Hill Preserve State Park Oct. 13

October 1, 2018

Join Topsail Hill Preserve State Park and the Northwest Florida Astronomy Association (NWFASTRO) in celebrating National Astronomy Day.  Come for “Topsail Under the Stars,” an evening of viewing the sun, moon and stars through telescopes on October 13, 2018 from 3:00 to 9:00 p.m.  Solar telescopes will be out until the sun sets for you to safely view the sun.  Then the astronomy association will switch telescopes and assist you in viewing any constellations, planets and other celestial objects that are visible.

The program is weather dependent, and a decision is made by 2:00pm the day of the program as to whether the program can occur.  Please call the ranger station before heading out for the program.  Participants need to be in the park before the gate closes at sunset so please be in the park by 6:00p.m.

This program is free with regular park admission.  CONTACT: Hallie Oalde  hallie.oalde@dep.state.fl.us
